After stopping at exit 151 on Interstate 71 this week, I noticed an improvement in the Sprint Power Vision data service while checking email. The higher speed data connection known as EV-DO Revision A, improves cellphone and data card connections to the Internet; this expansion is part of a nationwide improvement announced in October of 2006. I’ve been impressed at how quickly new areas, particularly rural, are coming online in Ohio. Coverage is almost solid from Cincinnati to Columbus and now much of I-71 from Columbus to Cleveland is coming online.
As I stopped to fill my Volkswagen Jetta TDI at the Mt. Gilead exit 151 renewable fuels Sunoco station, my normal stop. Biodiesel (B-20) was $2.80/gal today, while I’ve noticed that unleaded regular gasoline was regularly seen at $3.49/gal after the 30 cent increase earlier this week. (did see a $3.09 gasoline in Lodi, Ohio earlier on Thursday)
